Burlington, Ont. — Jan. 27, 2023 — The City of Burlington is creating a new residential parking permit program for residential on-street parking. Residents are being asked to take a short online survey by Monday, March 6, 2023. The information gathered from the survey will be used to inform City staff. They will use the information to:

  • Create an on-street parking permit program;
  • Balance on-street parking with safety, road use, enforcement and emergency vehicle access;
  • Create consistent rules and regulations city-wide and
  • Create a residential on-street parking permit that meets residents needs based on changing conditions

As parking needs change in Burlington, the City is working to offer residents parking options to manage parking needs and the growth of our city through development. Residents are encouraged to take the survey to let staff know how to best serve residents. The goal of the on-street parking permit program is to provide a permit program that works safely and maintains emergency vehicle access.

The parking permit survey opened on Thursday, Jan. 26 and closes on Monday, March 6, 2023. Staff will present a report with the survey results and a permit program to the City’s Community Planning, Regulation & Mobility Committee and City Council this summer.

Burlington is a city where people, nature and businesses thrive. Sign up to learn more about Burlington at and follow @CityBurlington on social media.

“Parking in our city has seen a lot of changes over the years. Now we need to offer you parking options to help you manage new ways of working, your changing family and the growth of our city through development. This survey is your chance to let us know how we can best serve you, our residents. These changes look different for all of us and there are numerous factors to consider. For some, adult children and parents may be living at home, for others that live in tighter neighborhoods – parking may be an issue due to the design of the community.

We want to know what is ideal for all of our residents so we can provide a permit program that works safely and maintains emergency vehicle access.” — Kaylan Edgcumbe, Manager of Integrated Mobility, City of Burlington

  1. More & more families are experiencing parking issues on Burlington streets. Our children have four grandchildren-17-23 who are living at their parents because they can’t afford to live out. They are all working & own cars. The parents have a double driveway & garage but still have at least one car on the street overnight. Our grandkids are all very responsible but are caught in a financial dilemma. Parking permits would be a great help.

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.


A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
